U-Square
( Gwangju Express/Direct Bus Terminal. 유스퀘어 or 광주터미널)

This is Gwangju Express/Direct Bus Terminal. Originally it was called as '광천터미널(GwangCheon Terminal)' named after its location, but after renovation they renamed it as 'U-Square'.

How large is the metropolitan area which this line serves? The stations appear to be very clean and functional, very nice indeed!

The population of Gwangju is about 1.45 millions now(6th biggest city by population in korea). The city had plans to build 3 line subway at the beginning but they are going to change 2nd line to be built as Light Rail Transit.(even though it's not yet decided but I think there's no choice but select LRT due to its financial problem.)

I changed the title but it didn't work on main. I'm sorry if it made you confused but I think it's ok to upload bus photos because its topic title is 'Subways and Urban Transport'.

KTX ticket holders can also get a 50% discount on parking at Gwangju Station. Unfortunately, neither of the discounts apply to passengers using SRT services, but a spokesperson for Gwangju Metropolitan City says that it is currently in negotiations to fix this. The city is supporting the new shuttle with 1.2 billion won, but says that the services could be canceled if the number of average passengers per day drops below 800.
I'm glad to see this service operating; it seems bound to better tie KTX service to urban development in Gwangju, even if the station isn't ideally-located within the city.
